Today I hope to do a little Christmas decorating. I got all the fall stuff put away. I did this bookmark card for one of my shoe box groups. Love this color. Lost Lagoon.

I finished the Christmas cards yesterday. All I need is stamps. Yesterday was our turkey day since Joe is feeling better. Now I need to clean up my stamp room and of course the kitchen is disasterville! This is a card I made for our daughter for her birthday. She loves pink so I had to add a little pink.

We are back. Cruise was just OK. Azamara can't pony up to Regent! Spent Sat. morning in the ER. Poor Joe had a bad sore throat and could not eat or drink since Thursday morning. Got a steroid to bring down the swelling and an IV to hydrate him. Finally this morning he is feeling better. Maybe we'll be able to do our "Thanksgiving" today. This card was one I made for shoe box. I'm posting it for our Thanksgiving greetings to you all. I painted the leaves with Wink of Stella and it really ramped it up a notch.

Here's an old stamp that I used to put bluebonnets in a pocket. I first stamped some grass but that is hard to see. A busy day today. We leave for Houston tomorrow and then to Miami for our cruise. Joe was helping change sheets this morning and agreed to make the bed every day for the next two weeks. I in turn said I would cook and do dishes. See why we are working on our 56th year together. So compatible! Ha! href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-voHzGK9aPJ0/WCMp5xohNtI/AAAAAAAAIpk/vq_Y_FDgeSsv9YaYFssMdZbz-DVLiE3AwCLcB/s1600/IMG_0265.JPG" imageanchor="1" > pocket.

I received this swap card from Sharon. I love the design and the star die is great! I got rid of all my "fibers" because I never used them. Now I'm going to have to grow my collection back!

My friend is celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. I made this card for them.

This is not a very good picture of the card that Denise made for our shoe box group. Love the copper embellishment. Shoe Box is tomorrow and I am in a panic. Can't come up with something I like. I'll try again today

This card was one that we did for shoebox. Pam designed this one. The tiny butterflies were added because I had inky fingers! She had a bow @ the top of the bakers twine but I added a butterfly to tie it all together.

Here's a card that Denise did for shoe box. Look @ the clever way she used layers as embellishments.

Pam showed us how to use this pleated design that is very popular right now. She even gave us each a diagram so that we can make it again.
